    Perfect location! You’ll have a great view of the marina and beautiful waterfront from the common room - great view for an awesome price. The staff are very warm and welcoming and super helpful with advice for things to see and getting there :) Travelling in the off-season meant I had a room and bathroom to myself which was fantastic for the price I paid. Highly recommend this hostel for those looking for something cheap.

    Great location in the centre of town. Easy to walk to hostel from the one main bus stop in few minutes and to the marina to get a boat to Palmeria island. Easy to explore Portovenere's main street and the seaside with a sunset view - not all towns on the coast have a sunset view. Lockers in room so this brings a sense of security. Helpful staff about early arrival and information. Huge common room with not much of an atmosphere, but it's a place to eat food from nearby Conad supermarket.

    View of town and harbor from hostel windows. Very nice location. Cooking facilities limited, microwave and toaster oven. Beds are good. Wifi good. Dining and common room large with big screen TV. Receptionist Francesca was very pleasant and accommodating. William Beyers USA.

    The hostel was very comfortable. I slept in an all-girls room, the only problem was that the shower was tiny and a bit uncomfortable but it's fine. Porto Venere is beautiful and so chill, it's the perfect place to stay it you want to visit Cinque Terre. I actually liked it more than some of the Cinque Terre towns. It's a 30 min bus ride from La Spezia where you can take a train to the Cinque Terre.

    Very Good

    The lady checking me in was amazing and very friendly, gave me lots of tips and advice on the cinque Terre. Was the only one in my room so it wasn’t very social the hostel which I don’t think it would be either. No kitchen and just this large mess hall. There was a one year olds birthday party the night I stayed which was very wierd for me.

    The hostel is nice and staff are helpful. It's really hard to find and up multiple flights of steps, so more signs or an email beforehand with instructions how to find the hostel would have been helpful. I was here in January, and was disappointed with security. You check yourself in and out because reception is not 24/7, and one night I stayed there completely by myself. You can only lock your hostel room door, everything else is unlocked so I didn't feel very safe as a solo traveler.
